    - also binding and label

3. Can be made in any style of your choosing.

This month's article:

Every year the president elect has a challenge. In the past we have had Selfie Quilts,  Color Gradated Color Quilts, Scrappy Trip Quilts, and PIGS. I don’t know what was selected before that because I was not a member of Utah Valley Quilt Guild. This year, because we didn’t have a president elect for a few months, wonderful Crystal and Jacque proposed the 6”X60” quilt as our challenge. Crystal has seen a display of these and loved them. I was at the meeting when it was proposed and kind of blew it off. What good is a quilt that size? But then I noticed that thin wall space in my house right by the closet door as you enter my house. ..... Click on the yellow link below & keep reading.

“Designing a Traditional Quilt"

- steps to making your own great creation 

It is so rewarding to create your own plan and make an original design, or be inspired by the vintage quilts that have stood the test of time.

Adapt and update time honored designs to fit your needs.


Our guest this month is Megan Legas.  She will teach us how these skills open the door to more options and possibilities for all of your quilts.

Words of Wisdom


My favorite quote from Brenda Sommers is: If you are a new quilter, or a quilter with shaky confidence – keep quilting!!!! You will get better, I am a much better quilter than when I started ...” Isn’t this where we all are? Loving what we do and getting better and better at it each day.
